Red face Campfire foods

I am going camping next weekend! What are some of your favorite over the fire meals? Thinking of doing burgers one evening.

Make a pot of chili this week and freeze it flat in a Ziploc bag, it will help keep other foods cold and be a no work meal, just heat and heat.

If young kids are going then you need hot dogs on sticks, pop corn and lots of marshmallows!!!

Watch a couple of these videos and you will appear to be an expert on campfire popcorn or tuck a couple of Jiffy Pop's in the trunk of the car!

S'mores! We cooked a lot of walleye over open campfires. When I was a girl scout, we made hobo packets, basically hamburger, veggies, sliced potatoes wrapped in foil and cooked directly on the fire.

I used to love camping so much, everything tastes better out in the great outdoors over a campfire. I think one of my faves is good ol' scrambled eggs and potatoes, maybe some cut up bacon or Spam mixed in with it. Skillet meals, and as Dawg mentioned, foil wrapped packet meals are easy and so good.

Here's a couple of threads with some ideas, Justice. Have fun, and you're always welcome to take some pics to share with us! We love pics.

Some of the posts in the threads below go a little off topic (we do that, lol), but it's fun reading. :-)

Meal ideas for camping?
What's your favorite camp meal?

Define camping. RV "camping", Like Boy/Girl Scout tent camping where you use coolers and have perishables or hiking/back packing type camping?

Make sure there are no fire bans in your region before heading out.
Couple of weeks ago I took my grand kids car camping in our local mountain and a ranger came to our site to let us know about the red flag alert (no camp fires, no charcoal).
Good thing I always bring my portable charcoal grill and my backpacking butane stoves as backups. The kids were disappointed about the fire ban but I made them great burgers on my heavy cast iron pan over my little backpacking stoves. I make killer burgers at camp.

No fire camp site = on one around the fire pit

I agree with having foil dinners, my favorite. A slice of butter, S&P, ground meat, potatoes, carrots, onions, double wrapped in foil and put right on the hot fire.

My second favorite, anything anyone makes hot over the fire, as long as that anyone is not me. ha.
